It's all about everybody else with some people - Americans last.
^^^^This is so true and it is sickening. Not to mention ignorant for anyone to think we can allow an unlimited amount of illegal aliens into this country and still have room for more.

Nope. It still doesn't give anyone the right to violate another country's immigration laws. Period.

It's the thinking of a naive child. But liberals don't operate on the basis of facts, it's all emotional and feelings.

Guess who fell apart and accused me of attacking him personally when I posted:

This seems to be a personal issue for you, so your focus is on people wanting to flee their country.

The rest of us are focused on Americans and America - what we can and can't continue doing with regard to legal immigration and illegal aliens.
I hit a hot button apparently - so I was right. He's personally invested and wants the doors open for everyone even though we have Americans living on streets.

You said: Why do MOST come here, work, then return home if it is so bad?


So many do not want to return because there is nothing to return to except death.

You are generalizing. GIVE us so true numbers.
Why do they still fly their Countries flag if that flag means death. That asinine.

The MSM always uses sensational headlines to get the masses all up in arms. This behavior divides the parties big time by reinforcing the one-way, negative thoughts of the MSM's target audience.

The problem is that too many do not care if legal or not- see the shooting at Walmart ? they raided the plant and took hours to termine who was legal or a citizen. Think all those kids did nit suffer too I am sorry but most like to box people up. True?

None of this ^^^^is irrelevant. So, what was your pointing in posting it?

Not all of my ancestors came here of their own volition. Some of my ancestors came to the New World on slave ships. Some were Amerindians.

As for the Amerindians. Even their ancestors came here from Asia. The Amerindians were constantly at war with other tribes.

At the turn of the century, we had lots of room to expand. There was no welfare so everybody---Americans and immigrants alike, knew that it was sink or swim for them. Not everybody who landed at Ellis Island was allowed to stay. There were many who were put right back on the boat that brought them here. Many Americans, as well as immigrants, were illiterate. Since we were an agrarian and industrial society, illiterate people were able to easily find work.

People came here knowing that in all likelihood, they would never see their families again. Thus, no one was crying and demanding that they be allowed to bring their entire extended family. If someone wanted to do that, they did it on their own dime and they did it legally. My maternal grandparents came here in 1921. One of the first things they did was to enroll in night school to learn English. As soon as they could, they became American citizens. My mother and her siblings grew up never having met their grandparents---and they knew they never would.

Things are different now, haven't you noticed?

So...Trump married a foreigner...and this is a problem for you because...?
